Ever gone to a concert and feel like your at a party? I heard it mentioned once that the concert is a party and the band is just the host of the party. In a way it makes sense; if the crowd isn’t having fun at the concert then the band isn’t going to make money so they should put a good show on.
Think of it, if you had to go to a party and you knew you were going to be bored, you would find a way to get out of it. But if you are going to a party where you are going to have friends and fun there, you want to go. You might even take the next day off of work due to the amount you have taken in the night before.
If you think about it for a moment, how often do you enjoy going to a party at a church? Not as much as going to a rock concert and seeing the band and being there enjoying the noise and craziness.
This is what worries me about some of the music that is out there. While there are bands that have fun, there are those that chose to use music for spreading hate and anger. Those who are trying to have fun the music can do things like Tommy Lee does in some of the Motley Crue videos, where the drum set comes out of the stage and will do a full roll while he plays! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nm1BJPe-pg ) There are the ones where Jon Bon Jovi uses a harness to fly over to the crowd to a separate stage part.(https://youtu.be/lDK9QqIzhwk )
He nicknamed the move as being ‘Captain Kidd’. Those you can see that he and the band were having fun.
With all the hate that is out there, shouldn’t we have a safe to place have fun? Do we have to have the anger and shootings all the time?
